    Default Hello!

    Hi, my name is Leah and my husband and I will be adopting our first English Bulldog, whom we are naming Sancho, on Wednesday! I've done a ton of research on here (you guys are so knowledgable! TY!) in the last few weeks in preparation and now he's almost here! I can't wait

    We were originally looking to rescue a Frenchie from FBRN, however that turned out to be next to impossible, and we were considering talking to a breeder. But then a friend of ours in Houston who knew we were looking sent us a picture of the cutest little puppy. Poor guy was apparently signed over to the vet after the owners couldn't (or should I say *wouldn't* since they paid $2K just for the dog!) pay a small vet bill.

    They thought he had parvo, but two subsequent tests have come back negative, so perhaps the first was a false positive?! Either way, we agreed to cover his vet bills and on Wednesday our friend will be driving him out to us (in NM). He's already crate trained and nearly potty trained. I'm sure the potty training will lapse a little bit his first week with us, but my hubby is excellent w/ dogs so I have no doubt he'll be good to go (no pun intended) pretty soon. In the meantime, we installed a pet gate to keep him in the tiled area of our home. We needed a loooong (like 10 ft) one, and this (see pic) was the only one we could find. It was pricy on Amazon and needed some tweaks to be fully functional, but it works now and doesn't look as bad as the white ones...at least IMO.

    Anyway, I can't wait!!!! My favorite part of all your posts has been the pics, so here are a couple for you guys.

    Thank you both for the welcome! I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions (even if I don't have plenty of sleep, LOL) and look forward to maybe contributing in the future.

    As for smiles...we don't even have him yet and he makes us smile! I put together the image with the five pics to put on my PC desktop at work, so that when I'm frustrated, I can just look at it and smile. How can you not?

    Thank you again. Cheers!

    Hi Leah and welcome to EBN! I love your little guy Sancho...what a cutie pie! You are in for the adventure of your life. It's very rewarding to be the parent of a bulldog. The love they give you and the joy that exudes from their every pore is amazing.

    Welcome to the site and your little one is a cutie. So glad you found him, if people can not afford the vet bill they will never take good care of him, so I'm glad you have him so he will have a good life. The gate looks great also, and is a good idea when potty training one to confine them to a certain area of the house.
